The Energized program of Summer School Health is a broad approach to active play and physical activity that is focused on building the schools’ capacity to provide opportunities for physical activity on school days on top of students’ physical education classes. This is to make sure that they get the suggested 1 hour of moderate-to-intense exercises every day. Here are some of the primary elements of this program:

  • Providing age-appropriate and culturally acceptable learning initiatives and experiences that give students the physical activity they need on school days on top of their physical education classes. The initiatives are designed to combine learning and doing activities.
  • Opportunities for students to use the knowledge and skills from their experiences, communities, and culture.
  • Sessions about capacity building focused on physical activities on top of physical education classes and family and school involvement to ensure that students get 1 hour of moderate-to-intense physical activities every day.
